Hello Everyone, I will be doing a half marathon in May (my second one, very excited!). I will also be collecting donations for POGO, the Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario, a very important organization that helps families with a child undergoing treatments for cancer. A dear friend of mine has used their services while her 2 year old underwent chemotherapy, and couldn't say enough positive things about how they have helped and been a source of hope to her family. Please donate and show support to this wonderful group. I will run extra hard for it!!
